Memorial Bench FAQs

What is the first step to create a memorial bench?

In the past few decades, tributes to loved ones have expanded beyond a cemetery head stone or grave marker. One very popular choice is to create a Memorial Bench or piece of furniture that can then be placed and enjoyed by many others as time goes on.

American Recycled Plastic works one on one with you and your family to complete your wishes for your tribute piece. We begin by choosing your bench style, size and color. You can customize in one of 4 ways through engraving in the bench, color fill engraving in the bench, or by adding a plaque or photo plaque.

Let us walk you through each step as we create a unique, one of a kind memorial tribute to your special loved one.
